BISSEL

Permanent Supportive Housing program at the PSH program provides a safe environment for men and women who require significant permanent supports to maintain their housing. The PSH program will operate within a Harm Reduction paradigm and under the philosophy of Housing First. Those moving into the PSH program will agree to assertive engagement by staff.

Integrated case management services will be provided by a team of Support Workers to enhance individual’s self-reliance while enrolled in the PSH program. Residents will have access to services based on their individual needs including a cultural advisor. Interventions will be dependent on each individual’s program plan, diagnosis if applicable, and abilities.

Interventions may include addictions and mental health counselling, harm reduction supplies, financial literacy, community integration and daily living skills. A typical program participant will be 18 years of age or older, have a diagnosis of an FASD or suspected of an FASD** based on the life history screen. Additionally, history of homelessness or multiple attempts in other housing environments will be considered.

Please read the following forms. If interested, please send documentation to Ashley Baxter no later than 9:00 am on June 27th, 2016. abaxter@bissellcentre.org
